Season 03: Plaguefall is now live on Steam for Deep Rock Galactic adding new threats, Performance Pass, and explosives

From Press Release:

3 November, 2022 – Today, Deep Rock Galactic enforcers Coffee Stain Publishing and Ghost Ship Games have today launched Season 03: Plaguefall on Steam. Set to launch on console from 17th November, Season 03: Plaguefall brings a deadly illness called Rockpox to the planet of Hoxxes IV. Alongside this new disease comes another completely free season Performance Pass with 100 levels of unlocks, four new grenades, new in-game encounters and enemy types, and plenty of challenges to navigate this outbreak.

Pickaxes, Pustules and ‘Powerwashing’
Season 03: Plaguefall sees a host of infected meteors making contact with Hoxxes IV, bringing with it a pestilence called Rockpox and infecting the Glyphid creatures wandering the mines with foul carbuncles. Mission Control will warn miners of a predicted strike, who will need to evacuate the danger zone, standing at the ready to both wipe out infected Glyphids and contain the spread through special janitorial duties. Upon impact, dwarves must call down a cleaning equipment, and do an up-to-scratch job of cleaning up any and all Rockpox from the mines before extracting the infected plague hearts from the meteor and disposing of them appropriately.

Plaguefall’s Performance Pass
Deep Rock Galactic’s completely free Performance Pass returns for Season 03: Plaguefall. Chock full of 100 tiers full of unlockable content, the dwarf that puts their nose to the grindstone will be rewarded with plenty of cosmetics, Resource Caches, Weapon Frameworks…alongside plenty of company Scrip to use on the patented company Cosmetics Tree. Players can progress through the Plaguefall Performance Pass by completing season challenges and collecting Plague Hearts from the remnants of the fallen meteors.

Blown out of control
On top of all these rewards for dedicated employees, Deep Rock Galactic is also supplying four new grenades, with one for each class of dwarf. These explosives include the Springloaded Ripper, which allows the Driller to tear anything up with three rows of razor blades, as well as the Tactical Leadburster which sends bullets far and wide when detonated by Gunners. The Scout can do serious damage and then some in one swift move with the boomerang-like Voltaic Stun Sweeper. Finally, taking inspiration from Season 02’s rivals, the Engineer can release a swathe of shredders with the new Shredder Swarm.

Finally, Season 03 includes both balance changes to weapons as well as a brand-new “Biohazard Pack” cosmetic DLC, which offers some level of protection against any infections in Season 03 – we think. You can check out what’s included in the trailer here.

Season 03 is out now on Steam, and will officially launch Xbox and PlayStation from 17th November. Deep Rock Galactic is available now on SteamXbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
